MY GENERATION

  Bent over like leaning trees

  with lines that run like rivers

  these creatures surround me this week

  their aching bones echoing every porthole


  And yet at feeding time.  A change becomes.

  the camouflage comes off.  They take on a guise.

  queuing as if there's no tomorrows.  To eat as much today.

  filling their already fat and full bellies.  So they bulge more


  These people are like fodder to the slaughterhouse

  with a ritual of daily feeding. Snacking, dinner more snacks.

  The older generation have gone food crazy for some reason

  Bring back My Generation.  At least all we did was Rock!
